What really struck me about the film however was its leading lady, Charlotte Gainsbourg. I knew her form the Balenciaga ads (of course) and had even seen (and had become a fan of) some of the music videos from her album. I always thought she was pretty and incredibly glamorous (she is the prodgeny of French music composer Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin) but after seeing her "in-action" on the screen, I had developed a full-on girl crush. Her attitude and glamor just don't come across in stills. She is by far the most stunning woman in my mind.
